That voice echoes through my thoughts shaking me awake Ciara calm down I say to myself. I roll onto my side and look at my clock the numbers flash 1:30 am I shake my head and turn my lights on, I look in the mirror why did he have to kill her, my sister why did he make me watch as he strangles her gasping for breath, why did she have to leave me ,now I'm alone. I look in the mirror at the bronze skin and beach curl like hair that most girls dream of. I do my makeup erasing the bags under my eyes caused my no sleep or the red eyes from crying once I look good .I took out my red sheer shirt with the gold studs on the pockets and shoulder and my black leggings with my black vans I put on my sliver snake ear cuff and slid on my sisters black diamond ring.I sat there looking at the ice blue eyes in the mirror.
Maybe tomorrow I will talk to Ciara then I shook my head well at least I will see her at the party tomorrow he said to himself I just wish that I could wrap my hands around her body and kiss her pink lips and wipe every tear that runs down her beautiful bronze skin away and look into those amazing blue eyes forever. I get up and grab my white v neck shirt with a pair of black jeans I put on my hat and look in the mirror my dark skin like hot chocolate and close cropped hair yes I sag my pants but only a little I sling my backpack over and walk to my awaiting friends car.
I walked into the doors of school keeping my head down and walked into my first class science. It was her favorite subject I put my hood on so nobody would see the tears wiped my face and saw a guy with deep hazel eyes looking at me I grabbed my stuff grabbed the work and left in the middle of class I walk into the rest of my classes and pick up my work as I am called down to the principal office her name is Trisha I have been there so many times that I’m like a secretary we are on first name basses go on in ii drop my stuff on the desk and walk in yes I said why did you leave in science she said amused she talks way to much I say and smile I get good grades yet all these teachers complain she laughs go ahead you know the drill I walk over to the main desk and look at her she smiles and gets up and I take my place at the desk the boy walks in you forgot this and hands me my charm bracelet from my sister thank you so much I take the blue pass forms and write him one here so you wont be late he leans on the desk go out with me what I said shocked I got a closer look at him he’s sweet smart he has nice body with muscles good style and eyes that fall on me making me blush sure why not I said calmly and give him my number now go to class he touches my hand and walks away I see Trisha staring at me with a knowing look shut up I say and get back to work.
I did it I asked her out she left her bracelet so I walked to the office gave her the bracelet and asked her I could feel her eyes assessing me as she decided then she said yes I touched her hand and it was like electricity and she blushed and gave me her number. Wow she must have felt it too I said to myself as I walked into social studies.
i went home and knocked on my dads door he laid in bed like a lifeless lump he always loved her more I felt tears run down as I closed the door I felt a hand on my shoulder I know sweetie my mom said and she pulled me into a hug I sobbed after a few minutes mom I have some girl news she smiled yeah we sat down on the crème couch and sunk in I got a date I said happily that’s great she said smiling you think you could help me get ready of course she said and we walked into my room sit she said pointing to the bed and walked to the closet and picked out a floral criss cross dress and I got dressed then she picked out a 5 inch pair of light pink peep toe heels that match the flowers in my dress I slipped then on as my mom sat me down and washed my hair the curls down my back as she did a water fall braid in my hair and then handed a matching pink clutch with my phone and money in it the door bell rang and my mom jumped up you do your makeup quickly and ran out I coated my lashes with mascara and did a cat eye with some pink lip shine. I rushed downstairs not knowing what awaits.
